Grade 12 students from William Derby School in Strasbourg found some time between studying for finals and preparing for Grad ceremonies this weekend to pose for a casual class portrait on June 2. The unique panoramic photo was taken at the old barn on the Kazeil farm south of Strasbourg. See more information on this Photo: Brenda Cardiff Photgraphy – Govan, Saskatchewan year’s WDS Grads on pages 11 through 14.

Canada Post workers start rotating strike action The Canadian Union of Postal Workers began a 24 hour strike in Winnipeg at midnight June 2. The Union says it will continue to pull out workers and rotate the strike to other locations across Canada. It is not known when the rotating strike action might hit Saskatchewan locations. “We’re starting in Winnipeg because it is the first place where Canada Post brought in new machines and work methods that are causing so many problems for the public and postal workers,” said CUPW National President Denis Lemelin. Lemelin said CUPW has been trying to get Canada Post to deal with service and health and safety problems for more than three years

but management has refused. Consequently, the union has been forced to bring these issues to the bargaining table. “We have a dangerous workplace that needs to be fixed but Canada Post won’t listen to us. The strike’s purpose is to create leverage in order to encourage Canada Post to abandon its dangerous approach to modernization and their many concessions. The goal is still the same. We want to negotiate solutions. We have done our very best to get an agreement without a strike. Unfortunately, Canada Post has left us with no other choice. We cannot accept unsafe and unfair conditions,” Lamelin said. He added that CUPW’s negotiators are prepared to keep trying

to negotiate a contract. For Canada Post’s part, the Crown Corporation says it has offered further compromises and improvements to the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, including an offer to put on hold the contentious Short-Term Disability Program, and make improvements to other benefits such as annual wage increases, cash bonuses tied to the company's performance, job security, and vacation leave. A Canada Post spokesman said the disruption to postal service is completely unnecessary and the focus of the company and union should be on negotiating a new labour agreement and serving Canadians.

With rainy, damp weather continuing to slow down spring seeding, it’s amazing that any farmer is able to kick up a bit of dust this Spring! However, Rick Sedgwick was able to stir up a little bit of dust as he seeded wheat on a corn stubble field 10 miles east of Duval. Rick was nearly done seeding on that day, and managed to complete everything on May 26. For more details on the progress of spring seeding, see the Crop Photo: Michelle Sedgwick Report on page 10.

Dear deer!!

Provincial news briefs Kelln convocates Cancer Agency and Crop Insurance workers support strike action Saskatchewan Cancer Agency workers represented by the Saskatchewan Government and General Employees’ Union (SGEU) have voted 86 per cent in favour of a strike mandate and Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation have also voted 86 per cent in favour of a strike mandate. The votes took place from May 11 to May 26. SGEU is asking for a 12 per cent wage increase over three years, which Bob Bymoen, President of SGEU, says is reasonable considering the compensation packages that were negotiated for the province’s managers, nurses and doctors. SGEU represents approximately 520 SCIC employees working in the Agristability and Production Insurance programs who have been out of a contract since September of 2009. Crop Insurance workers also gave notice last week that effective June 3, until further notice they will be working a strict 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Friday schedule, with no overtime and weekend hours, for the duration of the job action.

Gina Marie Kelln convocated from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, on June 1, 2011, with her Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and Bioresources with Distinction. Gina is a 2007 graduate of William Derby School in Strasbourg. She is now employed with Viterra as a manager of agronomic services based from Strasbourg. Her territory includes Strasbourg, Lemberg, Raymore, Gina Marie Kelln Southey, Cupar, Ituna, and Photo: Academy studios, Saskatoon Lestock. Gina is the daughter of Fred Kelln and Deb Schwandt-Kelln, and a sibling to Breeanna, Chelsea, and Jordan.

Dickson said that as a result of SAHO’s request for an opportunity to present a new contract offer, there will be no additional strike action by Health Sciences members before the meeting next Wednesday. The HSAS contract expired March 31, 2009 and Health Sciences professionals have been frustrated by the slow process of negotiations over the past twenty six months. Health Sciences represents more than threethousand specialized health care professionals from more than thirty health care professions across the province.

The Nokomis & District Museum opened June 1 for the 2011 summer season, and a familiar face will again greet visitors to the facility. Melissa Styles (above right) is shown above in the School House display, with her silent, but steady assistant. Melissa is working her third season as a summer-student tour guide at the museum, as she continues her studies as a second year Education student at the University of Regina. Being an experienced museum guide, Melissa is a fountain of interesting and useful information about the many displays and artifacts on view at the museum. She will be joined later in the summer by Jason Henry as they share tour guide duties until the museum closes on Labour Day. One of last year’s summer tour guides, Jennifer Tran, is working at the Lanigan Museum this summer.

Len then asked if there were any questions and he answered them as best he could. The afternoon concluded with refreshments and visiting.

Seniors Birthday Party held The Nokomis Seniors birthday party was held on May 27 at the Seniors Welcome Inn with approximately 16 people in attendance. Carol Wright and Earle Mansell were the birthday people this month. As Carol was not able to attend, Earle’s friends Dennis and Carole Freisier joined him and Lorna at the head table. Due to the live entertainment being unable to make it that afternoon, Ilene Harding and Vi Hemingway gave a few humourous stories and jokes to pass away the time. Everyone sang Happy Birthday and had cake with strawberries and ice cream. Lots of visiting and enjoyment of refreshments followed.


Nokomis Seniors meet at Welcome Inn The monthly meeting of the Nokomis Seniors was held on May 31 at the Welcome Inn with eight members present. The meeting was opened with O Canada, with Lylie Herman at the piano, followed by a Minute of Memorial Silence. The secretary read the minutes of the April meeting. Hazel Eddy gave the treasurer’s report. She reported that last month was a very good month in revenues and the expenses weren’t much, so the net income was up this past month. Correspondence: A letter was received from Stantec about community planning. They are wanting community involvement and want people to attend the meeting to be held in Nokomis in June. Old Business: Ilene reported that the attendance was down this year from last year at the Seniors’ garage sale and pie and coffee sale. Lylie thanked everyone for coming out to the Regional meeting held in Nokomis. Committee Report: Hazel Chute said that she hadn’t sent out any cards this past month. There were four tables at the 500 card party. New Business: The Seniors welcomed Hazel Pomfret as a new member. Dates were set for the card parties, birthday party and the next meeting. The Seniors decided to donate

some of the new items from the garage sale to the SSIA Annual Convention in Saskatoon. Ruth made a motion that they hold their annual bridge tournament next April. The Seniors then went into their annual meeting. The secretary position was the only one to come open. Hazel Chute moved to keep Lylie Herman

on for another three years. Ilene gave her annual president’s report for the past year. The Seniors went through all the different committees and made the many changes that had to be made. The annual meeting was adjourned and they closed by singing God Save the Queen, followed by refreshments and visiting.

April 27, 1930 - May 4, 2011 Elroy Oswald Kelln was born on April 27, 1930 to George Adam and Susanna Elizabeth Kelln on the Kelln homestead in the Cymric District. He received his education at the Mountain View School. He was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church in Duval. Elroy passed away on May 4, 2011 with his loving wife of 54 years and children at his side. Elroy married Elaine Erhardt on June 16, 1956 and continued living on the family homestead. They were blessed with four children, Danette (Ray) and their daughters Chantelle and Melissa; Danita (Don) and their son Ryan; Dean (Terry) and their son Catlin; Sheryl (Kevin) and their daughters Kayla and Janelle and sons Chad and Mason. He is also survived by his sister Pauline Weisbrod, sister-in-law Joan Kelln, brother-in-law Godfrey (Gladys) Hilderman and numerous nieces and nephews. In earlier years, Ozzie enjoyed playing hockey and baseball and a good game of pool. During the winter months he enjoyed snowmobiling with family and friends and a good game of cards! Ozzie was a hard working man. He took great pride in his farming and his cattle. Ozzie always had time for family and friends. He also enjoyed watching his grandchildren participate in sports such as hockey and curling. Ozzie also became a self-taught carpenter. There wasn’t a job he didn’t tackle! He was a mechanic in Duval fixing anything that came his way. His mechanics ability also became quite useful on the farm. In 1995 Ozzie and Elaine moved into Govan and semi-retired. They enjoyed traveling to the United States visiting Hawaii and Alaska amongst other places. As Ozzie’s health deteriorated, he enjoyed the comforts of home. He enjoyed watching game shows and NHL hockey, or relaxing with a good book. We love you dearly, we will all miss you! You have left us with many wonderful memories. A celebration of Elroy (Ozzie’s) life was held on May 9, 2011 at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Duval. Hansen’s Funeral Home of Strasbourg was in care of the arrangements.

Scheer elected Speaker Regina – Qu’Appelle Conservative MP Andrew Scheer was elected Speaker of the House of Commons on Thursday evening, June 2. At 32, Scheer is the youngest MP ever to serve in that capacity. He was elected by fellow MPs from a group of eight candidates after six rounds of voting. He was selected over the NDP’s Denise Savoie on the final ballot. Both MPs had experience serving as Deputy Speaker. In addition to his duties as MP, Scheer now takes on the time consuming Speaker’s job, and the accompanying benefits: a car and driver, an apartment in Parliament Hill’s Centre Block, an historic 19th-century farmhouse in Gatineau Park, a significant budget for entertaining, and a paycheque of $233,000. Prime Minister Stephen Harper congratulated Scheer on his election as the new Speaker of the House of Commons, saying: “I know this is something you have been preparing yourself for, Andrew Scheer through very hard work for a very long time. It is a great day for you and your family and I do want to congratulate you. I also recognize that after all these years of work, in the last few minutes, you have shown a traditional reluctance to take the position. As the Leader of the Opposition and I brought you to the Chair, I am sure nevertheless, that this is a proud day for everyone in your home.” “Clearly the members of this House have as much confidence in you as your constituents, the good citizens of Regina – Qu’Appelle,” Harper added.

Board sponsors this event, and those who walk to each restaurant get their name entered in a draw for Last Mountain Valley Business Association bucks. Arnold Davey and Donna McKenzie each received a gift certificate and lottery tickets.

Each year, the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association administers a provincial strategy to recognize June as Recreation & Parks Month (JRPM). Recreation & Parks Month provides a foundation from which to launch events and activities to increase awareness of the benefits of participation in recreational activities. This growing National campaign draws attention to the important benefits and values of recreation for the health, happiness, and growth and development of individuals, families, and communities. The campaign is not only intended to create awareness, but also to get people actively involved in recreation in a park setting. Communities across Saskatchewan have shown their support by proclaiming June to be Recreation & Parks Month and/or hosting a JRPM Celebration event.

Day of Dance at William Derby School William Derby School held a ‘Day of Dance’ on May 19 with Misty Wensel from FadaDance in Regina. The Duval Optimist Club funded the fun day. Misty danced with the students from Kindergarten to Grade 9. The Grade 4’s were taught a warm-up where they would freeze, touch a partner and make a crazy shape. The Grade 5’s did a similar warm-up, while the Grade 8’s learned a gumboot dance. Gumboot dancing originated in the mines of South Africa during Apartheid. Everyone had a great day filled with fun and dancing! -article and photos submitted by Deadra Oblander

The Grade 5 boys work on perfecting their dance moves.

The Grade 4’s practice their ‘touch-shape’ dance.

Creating and maintaining a great container garden for summer-long enjoyment A good container, suitable planting medium, a combination of healthy plants, and regular care is all it takes to create a spectacular container garden in a sunny to partly shaded location. Container: Use the largest container you can manage in your space. A large container gives plants more growing medium and access to more water than a smaller container. Make sure your container has one or more holes in the bottom to provide good drainage. Planting mix: Not all planting mixes are created equal. Good quality mixes are sterile and contain a high proportion of organic material, usually peat, with lesser amounts of perlite (white popcorn-like material for drainage but also holds some moisture and nutrients) and vermiculite (small, grey, sponge-like flakes that absorb water and nutrients). Look for ones specially made for container use, and avoid using garden soil. Some planting mixes, particularly those recommended for hanging baskets, contain slow-release fertilizer and water-conserving crystals. These additives ensure nutrients are continually available for your plants over the course of the growing season and that your container doesn’t dry out too quickly. Read the container mix label carefully or ask your gar-

den centre experts for guidance so that you purchase the right mix for the type of plant you are growing. Care: Water your containers regularly and always in the morning so the foliage will be dry before nightfall. Avoiding wet foliage at night helps prevent disease and slug infestations. Except for plants like lobelia, all of the plants I’ve recommended below will tolerate some degree of drought. When you water, do it thoroughly until the water runs out the bottom of the container. If the container is too dry and can’t absorb the water, set it in a tub of water for a few minutes to allow the planting mix to take on the moisture. Apply a weak solution of 20-20-20 fertilizer, at least once a week, after watering. Using frequent, dilute fertilizer solutions is more likely to produce healthy plants than using infrequent, strong fertilizer solutions. Read the label instructions and mix more weakly than recommended. In order to promote blooming all summer and keep your container garden looking its best, remove fading flowers regularly. Trim back trailing plants from time to time to prevent them from taking over their container. If you follow these steps, you will have spectacular container gardens this summer.

Plant combinations for spectacular showy container gardens Large container featuring fountain grass or draecena For a large container – 60 or more cm (> 24 in.) in diameter – fountain grass (Pennisetum setaceum and other species) is one of my favourites. It grows to a meter or more (3+ ft.) in height and forms a clump up to 30 cm (12 in.) across. When mature, it produces beautiful seed heads. Red dracaena (Cordyline australis ‘Red Star’) is another tall plant that can be used in place of fountain grass. For a show of colour around the fountain grass or dracaena, plant zonal geraniums (Pelargonium x hortorum), ivy ge-

raniums (Pelargonium peltatum), or ‘SuperTunia’ petunias (Petunia x hybrid). Don’t grow all three of these types of plants in one container. Repetition is easier on the eye than too much variety. Select one variety of these and buy three or four or more depending on your container size. To fill in around the flowering plants, use trailing lobelia (Lobelia erinus). If you are not able to water your containers regularly throughout the summer, however, don’t use lobelia. Once they have suffered through a stressful period of drought, lobelia goes to seed, won’t re-bloom, and look ter-

rible for the rest of the season. At that point, you might as well pull them out. Instead of lobelia, you could plant Swedish ivy (Plectranthus verticillatus) or sweet potato vine (Ipomoea batatas) – three or four of each – to trail over the edges. Both are quite drought tolerant. Large container featuring canna lilies Canna lilies (Canna x) make a bold statement in any landscape and especially when used in large containers. They grow to as much as two meters (6+ ft.) in height. They have outstanding foliage – some deep green, some chartreuse green,

others burgundy, and still others variegated. They also produce large showy flowers later in the season. Around the cannas, plant several acidanthera bulbs (Gladiolus callianthus, syn. Acidanthera bicolor). Acidanthera grow up to a meter (3 ft.) in height and have slender spike-like leaves. Later in the summer, they produce delicate white, maroon-throated, flowers with a sweet fragrance. Plant a few sweet potato vines to trail over the side of your container. There are a number of varieties but my favourite is ‘Marguerite’ which is bright chartreuse green. If you prefer a deep green trailer, use Swedish ivy instead of sweet potato vine. Other ivies will work, too, but none is as big and bold as Swedish ivy. Finally, after you have planted everything else in your large container, sow some Bright Lights Swiss chard seed (Beta vulgaris var. cicla ‘Bright Lights’). Its highly-coloured, highly-textured leaves are eyecatching and, as a bonus, you can harvest them for use at the supper table. -article by Kay Robertson Kay is a Master Gardener in Saskatoon who enjoys sharing her passion for container gardening with others.

Saskatchewan Hockey SGA Rule of the Week Hall of Fame Nomination Process Continuous putting – is it a rule? The Board of Directors of Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame Inc., in partnership with the Saskatchewan Hockey Association and the City of Swift Current, has finalized the nomination process for induction into the Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame. The nomination process for induction into the Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame will take place each year, and use of the official Nomination Forms is mandatory.

There are five categories for nominations: Builder, Grassroots Contributor, Player, Official, Team. The Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame will be located in the newly renovated Credit Union iplex in Swift Current. The inaugural induction ceremony is scheduled for the Summer of 2012, and will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Saskatchewan Hockey Association. The inaugural induction ceremony will be held in Swift Current and it is the plan of the Board of Directors that subsequent induction ceremonies will be held in other Saskatchewan communities across the province. The mandate of the Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame is to create, operate and promote a hall of fame to honor the people, teams and organizations of Saskatchewan whom have demonstrated exceptional contributions to the development of hockey.

by Computers and the Government of Canada (or all governments, for that matter) have one thing in common: they’re both confusing. I wanted to renew my passport, and my son said I could do it on the computer and print it out – so much easier than filling out the form by hand. The Government of Canada, too, insisted that this would be simpler. Thus encouraged, I duly filled in my name, my mother’s maiden name and so forth, and proceed to the place of birth, which was Bremen, Germany. I had no trouble with Bremen, but when I tried to type Germany as the country, I couldn’t. Aha – a window came up for me to scroll down and click on the correct country from a list of options. That was why the smart computer wouldn’t let me type it. Unfortunately the list showed Zanzibar, which was a long way from the Gs, and it did not go by quickly, as most such lists do. I decided the Government must think all Canadians are slow-witted, and allows us lots of time. But when I got to Lithuania, still a long way from the Gs, my finger was numb and slipped off the mouse. Somehow everything vanished and I had to start over. After filling in all the other stuff again I came to the countries, only this time the list started with

Albania. Well, I would fool the G. of C. I pressed my finger firmly on the mouse and held it in place with my other hand. Success at last! All I had to do was print it. But instead of just printing the ‘simple form’, the computer came up with a long list of options on how to print it. Now, I have used a computer for many years and have often printed things, but the G. of C. had me so baffled that by the time I’d lost and retyped the document several times I gave up and went to bed. My son showed up the next day with a one-page form from a sub post office, which we filled out by hand in a few minutes. Maybe it doesn’t matter. If they ever looked at my passport photo they’d probably call the police and put me in jail.

Q. Are you entitled to ‘finish out’ the hole if you have played and only have a tap in left? What is the penalty if you finish out of turn? A. The answer is provided in Rule 10-1c for match play and Rule 10-2c for stroke play. There is no penalty in either form of play if a player plays out of turn. However, when a player has played out of turn in match play, the opponent may immediately recall the stroke played and require the player to play in the correct order. Additionally, in stroke play only, a player who is required to lift a ball under Rule 22, may play first rather than lift. This is the practice often seen used by the professionals which leads to the general misunderstanding that a ‘continuous putting’ rule exists. For regular play in order to keep the ‘Pace of Play’, Golf Saskatchewan highly encourages the use of Continuous Putting. Brian Lee Executive Director Golf Saskatchewan

from the sidelines Touch or not? Hockey’s wacky superstition The Stanley Cup will be won this week or next by either Vancouver Canucks or the Boston Bruins and the winners will credit part of their success to their decision to avoid touching the conference championship trophy. So what excuse can the losers possibly use? Neither Vancouver nor Boston touched the Clarence Campbell Bowl or the Prince of Wales Trophy when they conquered San Jose and Tampa Bay in their respective conference championship finals, adhering to a relatively recent superstition suggesting it’s bad luck to touch any championship metal unless it’s Lord Stanley’s mug itself. The Canucks could have grabbed the Campbell Bowl and paraded it around Rogers Arena to the wild applause of their home fans, but captain Henrik Sedin did nothing more than pose with NHL vice-president Bill Daly with the silverware sitting on a table at centre ice, and then skate back to his team-mates as quickly as was politically proper. No one on the Bruins, after vanquishing Tampa Bay, touched the Wales trophy, either, but they gathered in a semi-circle around the bauble as photographers clicked away. Based on the fact Boston gave a little bit more love to their trophy than did the Canucks to theirs – and assuming there’s some basis

for legitimacy in the hockey superstition – one has to assume the Canucks have the ‘trophy touching’ edge going into the best-of-seven championship series. Last year, the Flyers touched their conference trophy – and lost. Chicago didn’t touch – and won. So there’s your proof, right? Not so quick. In 2009, Detroit didn’t touch – and lost. Pittsburgh, meanwhile, not only touched, but Sidney Crosby skated around the ice with the Wales trophy – and the Pens went on to win the Cup. So there you go. It might not carry the bad-luck superstitious weight of the No. 13, a black cat, or walking under a ladder, but touching the secondary trophy prior to taking a shot at Stanley has become a serious no-no. The winners make up for it when they grab Stanley, however.

Another year with unseeded acreage Farmers in southeastern Saskatchewan are in trouble. Only a limited amount of crop has been seeded, time is running out and rain continues to fall. The crop report that came out on May 26 didn’t raise alarm bells because overall seeding progress for the province had been quite good over the previous week. The report estimated seeding progress at 54 per cent as of May 23, up from just 23 in the report for the previous week. The five year average for May 23 is 72 per cent. At 54 per cent, by Kevin Hursh progress is on par with the spring of 2010. But remember, last year saw millions of acres go unseeded in Saskatchewan. Whether the situation ends up as bad as last year remains to be seen. Certainly the geographic distribution of unseeded acres will be different this time. The northern grain belt region has relatively good seeding progress. The problem is across the south and especially in the southeast. In the crop districts that include Estevan, Oxbow, Moosomin and Grenfell, seeding progress is estimated at only six to nine per cent. The crop district around Weyburn has only 19 per cent seeded. The next lowest is the crop district around Yorkton at 28 per cent, followed by Assiniboia in the south central region at 33 to 35 per cent. The southwest corner of the province is uncharacteristically wet and slow. Producers in the Maple Creek to Shaunavon area are often done seeding by the middle of May. This year, due to heavy snow over the winter and continual rains this spring, seeding is at only 37 per cent. Amazingly, there’s more seeding progress (39 per cent) in the crop district that includes Foam Lake and Wadena than there is in the southwest corner. The northern grain belt has had excellent seeding progress ranging from 62 per cent in the northeast corner around Hudson Bay and Tisdale to over 80 per cent west of North Battleford. Progress is actually well ahead of the five-year average across the north. Since the Ministry of Agriculture numbers are for the week ending May 23, progress is now well ahead of these numbers in many regions. Unfortunately, there has been limited progress in the regions that are furthest behind. The wettest areas continue to receive more rain. There has been substantial precipitation from Moose Jaw to Regina and east. The seeding deadline under Saskatchewan Crop Insurance extends until June 20 for some crops, but past experience shows that anything seeded after the second week of June seldom makes a good crop. And mudding the crop into the ground is seldom a paying proposition either. There is still time to get more land seeded. A lot of operators are set up to plant a lot of acres in a short period of time. However, drying time is required in the southeast just to let equipment role again. That much-needed drying time has been refusing to arrive. Instead, one low pressure system has followed closely on the heels of the last one. The regions with the biggest unseeded acreage are going to differ from last year, but the overall problem is going to repeat. While it may not be as extensive as in 2010, it appears there will still be millions of acres without a crop and millions more seeded so late that production potential will be limited. The marketplace is trying to sort out what this will mean to the seeded acreage and therefore production potential of the various crops. For producers in the wet areas, it’s a time to nervously watch the weather forecasts and the calendar. The seeding window is closing quickly.

Crop Insurance extends seeding deadlines With many areas of the province receiving excess moisture this spring, the Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation has announced it will be extending seeding deadlines for 2011, as it did in 2010. For areas with longer growing seasons, including Kindersley, Rosetown, Leader, Swift Current, Moose Jaw and Estevan, Crop Insurance customers will now be able to seed and insure most crops until June 20. In the rest of the province, Crop Insurance customers will now have insurance on any crop seeded by June 15, other than barley, oats, mustard, peas and polish canola which can now be seeded and insured up to June 20. Crops exclusive of these deadlines for the entire province are chickpeas, lentils, dry beans and potatoes because they require

more days to reach maturity. If Crop Insurance customers are still unable to seed by the new deadlines, due to excess moisture, they can access their Unseeded Acreage feature as of June 20. In areas with extreme moisture where land will not be in a condition to seed, producers can register Unseeded Acreage claims as of June 15. The Unseeded Acreage Payment provides $70 per acre, less seeding and insurance intensities and a five per cent deductible. “Farmers in many parts of the province have had difficulty seeding due to excess moisture,” SARM President David Marit said. “We appreciate this extension which will give producers more time to get their crops in the ground and still be insured.” “For the second straight year farmers have had to

Canada and Russia to increase livestock trade Canada and Russia have renewed their commitment to build on Canada and Russia’s strong ties and agreed to continue working together to increase bilateral livestock trade between the two countries. Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz met with his Russian counterpart at the opening of the first Canada-Russia Livestock Forum last week in Ottawa. Manitoba-based Genesus Genetics Inc. recently finalized an agreement to ship 4100 Canadian live swine to Russia, in a deal worth more than $5 million. According to Genesus Genetics Inc., this contract is the largest ever signed by Canada with Russia for registered purebred pigs. Over the last three years Russia’s annual average imports of livestock and genetics from Canada were worth $26 million in a potential market of $235 million. Under the theme ‘Partners in Livestock Excellence’, the Canada-Russia Livestock Forum brought together leading business representatives and government officials to strengthen bilateral relations with the aim of increasing trade and knowledge transfer between the two countries. Canada is an ideal partner for Russia to help its livestock sector develop to its full potential with key agricultural inputs – machinery, technology, knowledge and expertise.

deal with excess moisture delaying seeding,” APAS President Greg Marshall said. “This extension will allow more acres to be insured, which benefits the entire economy.”

Crop Report THE WEEKLY

Seventy per cent of the 2011 crop has now been seeded according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report for the week ending May 30. The five year (2006-2010) average for this time of year is approximately 81 per cent seeded. In 2010, 59 per cent of the crop was seeded at this time. Significant seeding progress was made in western and northern regions during the past week. However, producers in the eastern and southern regions made very little progress as the weather and field conditions continued to be a challenge. The majority of the southern and eastern regions are dealing with very wet soil conditions and continued flooding. Since April 1, 2011, many areas have recorded more than eight inches of rain, with other areas reporting over 10

inches of rain. The southeast is reporting 32 per cent seeded, the southwest 64 per cent, the eastcentral 64 per cent, the west-central 92 per cent, the northeast 93 per cent and the northwest 93 per cent seeded. Topsoil moisture on cropland is rated as 35 per cent surplus, 57 per cent adequate and eight per cent short. Hay and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as 32 per cent surplus, 58 per cent adequate and 10 per cent short. Sixty-seven per cent of the oilseeds, spring cereals and pulse crops are behind normal in development. Fifty-one per cent of the winter cereals are at normal stage of development for this time of year. The majority of crops that have emerged are in fair to good condition.

Facilities at Elbow Harbour Marina sold to a private operator

Spruce budworm aerial spraying to begin

The province has reached an agreement for sale with Cafferata Enterprises Ltd. of Elbow to buy the Marina facilities at the Elbow Harbour Recreation Site. The government-owned marina has been leased to Cafferata since 1986. The buyer has agreed to refurbish the marina over the next five years, beginning this spring. The renewal plan includes replacing the main dock sections, finger piers and ramp floats. The Elbow Harbour marina has been operated under a lease agreement by Cafferata Enterprises since 1986. Following the long-standing policy, the ministry offered the lessee right-offirst-refusal to purchase the marina assets. Government officials say the $240,000 sale price of the marina facilities is the fair market value, as determined by a professional independent appraiser. The province’s provincial parks rely on the private sector to provide a variety of visitor services including all fixed-roof rental accommodations, golf courses, boat rentals, food services and riding stables.

Aerial spraying to control spruce budworm infestations in selected areas of the Provincial Forest is starting, and will continue for a week to ten days, weather permitting. The Ministry of Environment will treat approximately 20,000 hectares of forest land in the Hudson Bay area of northeastern Saskatchewan. The biological pesticide, Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki (Btk), a naturally-occurring soil bacterium, is being used. Btk only kills certain types of caterpillars, including budworm.

Sask Environment says Btk has been safely used around the world for more than 40 years. It is not harmful to other insects (including bees), fish, birds or wildlife and poses no human health hazard. Btk does not build up in the environment, surviving only a few days after application if it is not eaten by the target insect, the budworm. Results of the program are monitored and reported. The provincial spruce budworm management program has been operating since 1992.

Self-consciousness in self-expression

Psychology for Living

was no question about whether you knew how or not. You just did it, and with practice, you learned more.   Artistic expression was just another way of communicating – of depicting the outer world, and also the inner world of imagination. Where was it, along the way, that we became self-conscious? When did we decide to deprive ourselves of these distinctly human forms of expression, because we did not ‘do’ it ‘well enough’?   Little children will sing, dance and draw, simply because they enjoy these activities. Somewhere along the way, many will stop. Maybe it is because they do not see Mom or Dad engaging in creative expression. Without thinking, we may tell them we are not very good at drawing,

  Do you admire the creativity of others and wish you had been blessed with the same abilities? Are there things you will not even try because you are convinced you have no talent? This may be one of the biggest tragedies of our culture.   In earlier times, and still, in some cultures, singing and dancing have been central within the flow of life. Children learned to sing and dance by singing and dancing. There

cannot carry a tune, or that we have no sense of rhythm. We are all hardwired to do these things.   Maybe when we are busy signing children up for lessons, we ought to take some ourselves. This is the surest way to reprogram that stuck part of the brain that says: “I can’t.” It’s never too late, and the bonus is feeling more fully alive, because we are using more of our faculties. Forget about being good. Do it for your soul – and for your children.

Home Plan of the Week


Radical environmentalism gone up almost everywhere in the world. The overpopulation scare was not the only false catastrophe narrative promoted by environmentalists during the 1970s. Long before we became concerned with global warming, the great source of anxiety was global cooling. There was fear that the burning of fossil fuels was raising the concentration of polluting particles in the atmosphere, which would reduce solar heat reaching the earth, leading to a new ice age. One major study published in 1974 warned there would ‘almost certainly’ be major crop failures as a result of global cooling by 1980. Stories about the threat of global cooling were featured on the front page of The New York Times and the cover of Time magazine.   Global cooling fears subsided when the world stopped cooling, and started to warm up. This brings us to the apocalyptic warnings surrounding global warming we hear so frequently today. Doomsday rhetoric about this crisis-of-the-moment has been every bit as lurid as that which predicted catastrophic global cooling and mass starvation. For example, Australian environmentalist Tim Flannery writes in his popular book, The Weather Makers, that unless greenhouse gas emissions are curbed dramatically, a warming climate will destabilize human civilization and create ‘a protracted Dark Ages far more mordant than any that has gone before.’ United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warns that the world faces a stark choice between ‘strong action on climate change’ and ‘oblivion.’ Like other apocalyptic environmentalists before them, Flannery and Ki-moon claim that unless we do as they say, utter catastrophe looms. The rhetoric has stayed the same, but the precise nature of the supposed environmental disaster has changed.

Naturally, the fact that the radical environmentalists’earlier doomsday predictions haven’t materialized does not mean we should dismiss concern over global warming or ignore environmental risks. We should continue to assess and respond to those risks rationally. However, we should also treat apocalyptic prophesies from the deep green movement with healthy skepticism.   There is an element of the environmentalist movement that has been gripped for 40 years by the conviction that the activities of advanced, industrialized economies will lead to an apocalyptic environmental collapse one way or another. This faction has worked backwards from this assumption, always seeking causes that will trigger the cataclysm they believe is an inevitable consequence of the high levels of economic production and consumption of a capitalist economy. Although we should take environmental risks seriously, we should also recognize the environmentalist movement’s track record of overhyping those risks, and consider that record as they continue to insist that civilization will collapse if we refuse to enact their policy agenda.   Given his track record, it’s no wonder fewer people are taking Camping’s newest rapture timetable seriously. Radical environmentalists have also built a record of wrongly predicting massive cataclysms, and we should be hesitant before enacting policies that entail enormous economic costs in reaction to their latest set of doomsday predictions.

  Recently, news reports were briefly dominated by the doomsday predictions of Harold Camping, an American pastor claiming he had discerned from biblical clues that the world would end at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 21. Camping had previously warned that the ‘rapture’ would occur in 1994. Despite his zero-for-two record, Camping isn’t giving up. He’s already moved on to a new prediction, claiming the world will actually end in October.   Attention-seeking religious leaders don’t have a monopoly on false doomsday predictions. There is at least one prominent non-religious political movement that also has a long track record of apocalyptic visions that have failed to materialize. That movement is radical environmentalism. With apocalyptic predictions in mind, it’s worthwhile to review radical environmentalism’s track record of incorrect catastrophic predictions.   As David Frum describes in his indispensible book, How We Got Here, doomsday predictions became a staple of far-left environmentalist rhetoric during the 1970s. One prominent strain of apocalyptic prophesy during that decade was the prediction of disastrous impacts from overpopulation. The most famous spokesman for this theory was Paul Ehrlich. In his bestseller The Population Bomb, he warned that global catastrophe was imminent and that the world would soon endure a famine in which hundreds of millions would starve. Ehrlich offered a few helpful suggestions on how slightly to reduce the damage, for example, recommending pets be killed to conserve resources.   Of course, 40 years later, the economic and societal collapse predicted by Ehrlich hasn’t happened. Instead, population has continued to increase while average living standards have

Espalier – Part II   Editor’s note: This article is continued from page 3 of the May 31 issue of Last Mountain Times.   Espalier is a unique and satisfying way to grow fruit trees in a small space. The article published last week introduced espalier, while this week we get down to the business of the how to.   There are many styles of espalier – the T-shape, the cordon, the diamond motif, the basket weave and the fan. The T-shape has a strong centre stem with a series of cross arms and is rather formal in design. This is a great design for apple trees which bear fruit on long-lived spurs. Both the cordon and fan are more or less fan-like in appearance with the cordon displaying distinct similarities to a Jewish menorah. Fan-like shapes are best for plums and cherries as they bear fruit on shoots produced in the previous year. Renewal pruning is necessary for consistent fruit production. Regardless of the style you choose, draw it out on graph paper to help you to design the necessary support framework.   Once you have chosen the tree of choice, the framework will need to be created. Heavy wire (12 or 15 gauge) is the traditional support which will need to be supported by the wall or fence. The first wire should be at least a couple of feet (.5m) above the ground and can be followed with upper wires a similar distance apart. Traditionally, three wires are used but more levels are completely acceptable.   It is easiest to use a whip to espalier but many gardeners I know would rather start with a larger tree. If your choice is to use a larger tree, choose

one that will fit your framework with branches that are evenly spaced. Plant the tree about 6 inches in front of the frame paying attention that the graft union is a couple inches above the soil level.   For larger trees, it is necessary to gradually tease the branches into the desired framework. It is amazing how flexible branches are in spring and how they lend themselves to a less natural position. Waiting to entice larger, woody branches is a lot more work. Branches that do not fit the design are simply removed.   If you are beginning your apple espalier with a whip then in early spring snip the stem at the height of the first wire. Ensure there are at least three buds below the cut that over the first season will develop into shoots. Tie these new shoots to the lowest wire leaving one shoot vertical. Next spring, prune this vertical to the height of the second wire and follow the same process. This prune and tie system forms the espalier pattern. It is best during this establishment time to prune off any fruit buds so the tree spends all its energy on vegetative growth.   Once your espalier form is set, then pruning is simplified but necessary in order to keep the form. Apples simply need to be kept in check but plums and cherries will need to have new branches trained into position each spring in order for fruit to be produced. Those branches that fruited the previous year are simply removed.   Espalier is not difficult and is attractive and satisfying. Perhaps this spring is the time to try your hand at it!

accidents; slips and falls. They can also be caused by a disruption of oxygen flow to the brain or conditions such as: strokes; cardiac arrest; near drowning; aneurysms; meningitis drug/alcohol abuse; and tumors. Simple practices can prevent brain injuries: play safely, drive defensively and make wise recreational choices; make it a habit to wear a helmet as wearing a helmet can reduce brain injuries for cyclists by as much as 88 per cent.   The effects of a brain injury can disrupt one’s daily life in a dramatic way or through subtle, yet significant, changes to personality, abilities and mobility. The social, emotional and economic consequences of brain injury are devastating not only to the survivors themselves, but also to their family members. The Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association (SBIA) provides support and services to brain injury survivors and their families. Each year, 2200 brain injuries occur in the province, adding to the numbers SBIA serves. SBIA also seeks to eradicate brain injuries by educating the public about how to prevent them.

Child porn arrests   The RCMP’s Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation Unit has announced the outcome of an online investigation into the activities pertaining to the possession and distribution of child abuse images in the Province of Saskatchewan. Between February 1, 2011 and April 21, 2011 police executed nine search warrants resulting in seven men being charged with possession and distributing child pornography. Several locations in the Province were identified, including Raymore, Churchbridge, Moose Jaw, Regina, and Saskatoon. The men range in age from 25 years to 58 years old. Numerous computers and other electronic media were seized by police. The investigations are ongoing, which will include a detailed forensic analysis on the computers. All men have appeared in court and are on release conditions while their matters proceed through the court process. Police say that, at this point, there is no connection between the charged men or the children found in the abuse images.   The Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit is comprised of investigators from the R.C.M.P., Regina Police Service, Saskatoon Police Service and Prince Albert Police Service. Their mandate is to investigate crimes involving the abuse and/or exploitation of children on the Internet. Crime spree in Melfort   The Melfort RCMP are investigating a string of offences which occurred in the early morning hours of June 1, 2011 in the city of Melfort. Between the hours of 12:40 a.m. and 4:30 a.m., the RCMP responded to three separate fires which damaged three vehicles, one camper trailer, two cars and the ex-

terior of one residence. No one was injured during these incidents. Melfort Fire Service contained all of the fires. A number of vehicle thefts, thefts from vehicles and damage to vehicles also occurred overnight. The incidents are believed to be related. Hockey stick attacker charged   On the evening of Wednesday May 18, 2011 the Regina RCMP responded to a disturbance call at the Twin Arenas Hockey Rink. Upon arrival, police were advised that two hockey players had been ejected for fighting and sent to the showers to cool off. One player then entered the change room and assaulted the other player with a hockey stick while he was in the shower. The attacker left the scene before RCMP arrived. The 22 year old victim received a large cut on his head and was transported to a Regina Hospital. The alleged attacker was identified as 19 year old Matthew Allan Ross, of Regina. He turned himself in to police on May 27. Regina RCMP have charged Ross with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, possession of weapon for dangerous purpose, and uttering threats. Ross was later released from police custody on the condition that he appear in Regina Provincial Court on June 29.

32 dogs rescued from MacNutt-area farm

  On Monday afternoon, May 30, the Saskatchewan Society for the Saskatchewan SPCA rescued 32 dogs from a farmyard located near MacNutt, in eastern Saskatchewan. The majority of the rescued dogs are greyhounds. Acting on a complaint about the condition of dogs in the farmyard, the Saskatchewan SPCA conducted an onsite inspection of the property. Finding no improvement in the care of the dogs, they returned with a search warrant. A veterinarian assessed the dogs onsite and confirmed they were in distress. At the time of the seizure, dogs were found chained to rusty old appliances, tractor tires and bales of hay scattered throughout the muddy yard. No drinking water was available for the dogs. One of the rescued dogs is now in the care of a veterinarian, while the remaining dogs were transported to the Saskatoon SPCA.   According to The Animal Protection Act, the owner of the dogs had three business days in which to contact the Saskatchewan SPCA to arrange for payment of the seizure costs. If the seizure costs are paid, the dogs must be returned to the owner. In this case, the costs were not paid so the dogs became the property of the SPCA on Thursday, June 2. It is expected the dogs will be ready for adoption beginning June 13th. Many of the dogs are greyhounds or greyhound crosses. A number of rescue groups have already contacted the Saskatoon SPCA and the Saskatchewan SPCA with offers of assistance to find homes the dogs.   “The cost for the MacNutt rescue operation was roughly $15,000. Coming on the heels of our rescue of 29 dogs from Bulyea this has created a heavy financial burden on our charitable organization. We are asking for the support of animal lovers across the province to help us assist animals in distress,” an SPCA spokesman said.

Most monthly cheques were mailed on Monday, May 30 or earlier.   Starting June 1, additional (non monthly) cheques for other programs were distributed to ministry offices throughout the province and were ready for pickup by clients and agencies beginning on Thursday afternoon, June 2. Most of the ministry’s payments are made by direct deposit, so fewer than 1,000 cheques, province-wide, will require this alternate distribution over the next week. UNRESERvED fARM AUCTIoN
